sizes warning they might aggravate tensions on the peninsula where they were joined by correspondent sara for sara what's been going on at the border for this in. well despite the threats of war by north korea we stain the military drills carried out by south korea today and now this comes after they were delayed at the weekend. and that gave time third emergency meetings the u.n. security council held an eight hours of last night to try and calm the situation down now but this week at that meeting with discussing a russian drawl statement that was cooling the north and south korea to avoid doing anything that would escalate this conflict we can now from the russian u.n. envoy talking about this. there may be going to vision of tension. serious conflict for that matter so in the big chamber when they have this private
meeting which was also of course asked for by the russian federation. we reiterate at the cool or. on both parties in the no uncertain terms we. asked the republic of korea to refrain from conducting the six the size of this at this point in time but there are certain political circumstances would try to deal with the situation unfortunately so far the security council has not been entirely successful. so one of the key issues. from coming up with a coordinated statement. with a different approach to bring approaches especially between the u.s. and china i know the u.s. making a very very clear that they were going to sign any agreement without a very clear clinton nation of north korea and its recent actions and north korea for his part we've heard making it very clear to the international community that any action that is taken it will certainly take but. these exercises are taking
place close to the disputed sea border between the two koreas now tensions between seoul in pyongyang have been rising haven't they. yes they absolutely have to. respond that it will respond we haven't seen any response from north korea yes but we've seen over the past couple of months these tensions rising between the sides of the last time the south korea carried out one of these military drills and they found the twenty third on the same island north korea responding by shelling of the island in one of the worst since the north korean war ended in one thousand nine hundred fifty three and that is to civilians killed and team really close outrage among the south korean public and amongst the why did international community to say south korea said that these are stunted military drills that they carried out square with saying that you know they still this woman even. with these military
drills being carried out today. this as the provocation now we've also heard the. government. under pressure from the public also the recent attacks to take the stuff the stuns tools north korea and we know north korea has been saying we need that is perhaps willing to enter into some discussion into tools we know that the gangs that inspectors and they're willing to now welcome the i.a.e.a. inspectors and to examine the need to facilitate whether the slow go ahead remains unclear the moment if he says people will not be watching to see what if anything will quiz response will be who we had last week saying that if this actually went ahead of these military drills. they have not happened that they would strike back even harder than the last time and the u.n. envoy saying that it takes
a day that the house continues to try and find some successful resolution and avoid the situation spiraling any further. into the two more into that. situation here on . the surface thank you. well you know with out still ahead for you this hour a campaign of fear the u.s. media around something scaremongering is washington could soon be carrying on. terrorism need this time in yemen. and u.s. policy review what did washington fail to mention its report on its strategy in afghanistan. for many people in central asian states russia scenes and then the opportunity millions of migrants every year in search of greener pastures but many are forced to work illegally and their life is far from perfect as in the pollution reports. the federal
migration. officers say they arrive at this early hour before the immigrants leave for work which usually happens around six am like duty the. conducted in order to find illegal immigrants usually we have about seven or eight such raids and. this time around the federal migration just a few people without permission to work in the country one of them is a twenty two year old. i don't have documents i don't know russia i've been in russia for about a year and i don't understand the rules and customs of the country. is one of a dozen immigrants who were apprehended during the raid but officials say there are millions more undetected in russia. currently there are about five million citizens working in the russian federation. legally the majority. are about people living in that tiny little room right there we're going to go down
the corridor into the kitchen and you can see for yourself that the conditions here are far from cemetery or convenient this is like a kitchen space something between a bathroom and basically a place where people cook and wash themselves as well. so why do vietnamese chinese and many from other asian countries continue to flock to russia. although they get paid a lot less than native workers were paid for the same job still a lot more than they would have. migrant workers or a very. developed economies. no one in the country wants to do. has the second largest number of immigrants in the world after the united states and there's plenty of jobs in industries such as construction and retail the flow of migrant workers doesn't show any signs of drying up even if the hours. along in the living conditions in cramped.
support. as he tried to storm the government buildings in protest of the presidential election. the poll was rigged. today. kerry after everything. quiet of course. assuming to get back to normal just starting the work week. thousands of protesters came to the very heart of the belorussian capital protesting an election that they believe to have been rigged thousands of people came to this square where we are right now. and the. central.
parliament building where thousands more came to join them at first it seemed like a peaceful protest people standing there shouting slogans. and leave which was of course directed specifically at incumbent president. just secured his fourth consecutive victory soon turned violent when protesters began storming the building breaking down doors smashing glass windows they were met with resistance by riot police camera crew in the brawl. in the face by police but. they sustained some bruises on their face and. they seem to be all right many other journalists. thousand people were detained according to official sources here in minsk after
police dispersed the riots brutally but very efficiently very quickly it was in a matter of minutes that the square which was filled with thousands of people was emptied by a riot police in full riot gear we know that several opposition of journalists and . politicians were either wounded or detained we know that one of the opposition leaders and presidential candidates mr nuclei of was arrested on his way to the meeting was injured on his way to the meeting i'm sorry he left his office building to head to a square when he was attacked he and his men were attacked by a number of men in black without any official insignia you know that they were beaten and you can i was hospitalized with a serious concussion according to his wife was a report hasn't yet been confirmed but according to his wife he was then taken away
from hospital by law enforcement officials and hasn't been seen since we also know that the offices of one of the major opposition web sites are a charter ninety seven was raided a little earlier and several of its journalists were also detained the last bit of information that they managed to put out was that there were being taken by law enforcement and after that all connection with them fell through so a very brutal clash between riot police and protesters that was dispersed last night. some extremely disturbing pictures there. has promised more protests only likely to see more volunteers that. i'm not sure if you can actually harris just to repeat that question the president's leaders and. they will be trying. to the streets of the capital to
protest what they believe has been a falsified election. the president has of course secured a landslide victory with over seventy percent of the vote it's his fourth consecutive win in a presidential election all of the presidential election has had its independence have been won by one and the same. continuing sixteen years of uninterrupted power and office opposition leaders of course saying that this election has been fraudulent and called for everybody and anybody who believes it to be to come back out onto the streets of the capital we don't yet know whether the people will be coming after last night's event maybe many perhaps it will not be as eager to come and protest out into the streets of the capital because of more clashes with police more violence but we do know the opposition leaders those that
have been detained or are seriously injured are planning to take more people out into the streets of the capital and they will speak. with more information when we get it. with the u.s. . to yemen that has been. opening up but it could be a secret links between the countries that is feeding into the american media which is not. terrorism is going to. america's secret aims in yemen are secret no more as confirmed by recent week a leaks this patch of classified diplomatic cables u.s. special operations forces are carrying out strikes against suspected terrorists in yemen and the yemeni government is taking the credit in exchange for yemen's cooperation the u.s. heavily finances the country's fragile government but u.s.
plans in yemen go further than strikes the military are discussing the long term basis and asking for more than a billion dollars to for i don't hide there some of the rotten how to dream for him in a nightmare for us it was to involve us in in inclusive fours in distant lands that would cost us a fortune there's a kind of intelligence national security bureaucracy. in this country austere and americans are run surely scared when the parcel bomb he styria broke out in october the us twenty four hour news machine did not fall short of feeding americans worst fears a second suspicious package from yet it was found at a federal facility that is an ideal country. o'conner years ago already believed out in the arabian peninsula is behind the shipment the packages from yemen gave rise to a lot of confusion as to whether they were really parcel bombs but one thing that
was beyond doubt the fear trigger has been pulled out yemen was in the news as a terrorist in a matter of days the u.s. officially deployed predator drones in yemen and started talking about bases there they deliberately overblow all of these incidents because there is a huge constituency a huge business national security business which is paid for by the u.s. taxpayer it's a way of capturing the political support the way of doing a lot of different things but what it's not doing is defeating terrorism the most generous estimates suggest there are perhaps several hundred al qaida members in the poverty stricken strive for and. deserts of yemen u.s. special forces have been chasing them for years causing dozens of civilian deaths what the u.s. is doing in yemen is really inflating the prominence of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula this is a group that probably would have very little street value in the arab street or the muslim street if the united states wasn't propping up on while a lockie of the sort of second coming of osama bin laden i think it's goes to show
how little we've learned from the boogeyman days of bush and cheney and how our own policies in danger us more in many cases that his policies on the surface american leaders are motivated by the fear of one day receiving a parcel bomb but some say disaster has other layers of motivation you're not going to make the technology of a letter bomb go away by attacking what you think is al-qaeda in yemen you're just going to make it move to another place u.s. government is basically very much into a marketing campaign to make these things look like the government is being effective in light of modern u.s. wars and their coverage in the media we've learned that the objective pros and cons of waging a military campaign can be mutate whenever fear comes into the picture and fear can justify almost anything going to check on our t. washington d.c. . now you can get more now on that story and other stories on our web site that's at dot com let's take a quick look at what's on knife you right now saving the u.s.

policy review on afghanistan and pakistan. would you be surprised that you as president and he's comments on the new policy on afghanistan and pakistan has never mentioned the old or new u.s. counter-narcotics policy or imminent threat and challenge to afghanistan its neighbors and to global security even once that is two main challenges in afghanistan corruption for itself and for terrorism for its neighbors have been played played nord the national intelligence estimate of us policy in afghanistan and pakistan excels in one thing in its mission statement finally it got its priority perfectly straight the number one thing is tried it second pakistan and afghanistan it takes only the third place but when you listen to the u.s.
